On 26 March 2019, John Casali was awarded the Oscar for best sound editing, for Bohemian Rhapsody. What does this have to do with Eure ? It was through the use of an extraordinary machine known as the Cantar, the Rolls-Royce of portable recorders made for audiovisual professionals.
Something you may not know… If Europe regularly reaches the stars, it is because the very first French rockets were designed and manufactured in Vernon.
Eure may not be the centre of the world, but it is no. 7 in French industry. Its privileged geographical location, lying between Paris and the ports of Le Havre and Rouen, enables it to enjoy the benefits of a dynamic industrial network driven by the presence of big international groups, especially in the aeronautical and aerospace industries, as well as the chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, automobile and agribusiness fields.
In addition to the large-scale industries, Eure also has a strong innovative small and medium-sized business environment. Companies that are 100% local, and that embody the much sought after “French know-how”.
From the Seine valley to the Milky Way, the Eure leaves its mark on the world.
